Copal Retreat Mexico Yoga Retreat Program

Copal Retreat offer a much-needed break from the hectic city life and modern life’s woes. Yet, should you want to experience the lively, cultural side of the Mayan Riviera, you will find the best restaurants, trendiest bars, Mayan ruins, and great shopping just minutes away. The essence of what peaceful simplicity should be and more.

Just imagine what it would be like to sip on a fresh coconut and practice yoga while savoring the sight of the starry sky on elevated roof terrace with an extensive roof top deck and the most amazing views of the Mexican Caribbean and lush tropical greens, while listening to the soothing sound of the ocean.

Welcome ceremony with Mexican cuencos is included in the package. It is a very traditional ceremony led by Daniel Alvarado Garcia using Mexican brass bowls in a similar way to Tibetan Buddhists. These bowls use their acute sound-waves to cleanse one spiritually and physically. Daniel, the leader, also uses this time to bless you before beginning a week of yoga and good health.

One massage is included in the package. Local masseurs can offer several types of massage, either on the beach or at the balcony at the retreat.

For the January 28 - February 3, 2018, retreat, Vincent Lu will be teaching the retreat.

You will learn how to bring what you learn on the mat, off the mat as you immerse yourself in this yoga retreat. You will join Vincent and his ever-present sense of humor and ability to bring authenticity and realness to every class, as you explore the deeper in-workings of yoga. All that can be learned, felt, practiced, and cultivated on the yoga mat, can be interwoven into daily living to bring fluidity, clarity, and a sense of calm and peace.

Although there will be two daily yoga practices, a dynamic morning flow and a deep evening Yin, the chance to practice yoga will be apparent and available in all things, the sand, the water, the air, the food, and the people.

This retreat is about being present, taking time for yourself, enjoying where you are and what you are doing, and above all else having fun and letting go. This retreat is suitable for any level of yoga practice.

For the March 19 - 25, 2018 retreat, Daniela Manzur will be teaching the retreat.

You will be working on the classic sequences with some modifications. This work will challenge you to focus on your roots, creating conscience in the ‘here and now’ by letting go of the mind and connecting with your internal knowledge. This will lead you to a continuous physical body connection and a new perspective as a spectator of your own story.

Included excursions

You will have an excursion to Tulum. It is the only city that the Mayans ever built on the coast and very worth visiting. One of the structures is "el Castillo" which is perched on a 12-meter high cliff overlooking the Caribbean beaches below. After this, it will be time to head to the idyllic beaches of Tulum for a couple of hours.

After visiting the ruins, it is a short drive down to Zebra. Between 6:00 to 7:00 p.m., they offer a free salsa lesson, followed by a live band from 8:00 p.m. You will definitely enjoy a truly memorable experience and fantastic food. You will also be able to visit two local cenotes, Grand Cenote or Garden of Eden, which Copal Retreat recommends visiting. You can enjoy a picnic lunch there, and use of snorkel-gear will be included.
